Our old beagle Mandy died a short while ago. She was a good dog, and if I get a chance I'm going to put a pic or two of her up here.
We, meaning my little brother, just brought home two more hunting pups of some variety. They're mutts in a sense, but they'll be good when my little brother gets done with them. He's good at that kinda thing. Their names are "Rufus" and "Fat-Boy." They're cute!
I first started hunting deer with a bow back in 1998 or so. I still use a Foxfire Crossbow with a 125 lb draw. Since I've started hunting, I have killed some deer, though I haven't found them all - and I tried. Four hours later, the blood stops. If you're a hunter, you understand. If you're not, it sucks. I have killed and found two does, weighing in at 135 lbs and 100 lbs. I have yet to shoot a buck with my bow, but I got my fair share of shots these past couple years. Something always goes wrong, though.
This year, though, I was able to shoot a buck with my shotgun. 11-points and well above 200 lbs. A nice deer. Very irregular, though; 4 on one side and 7 on the other. It's Nice!
I'm also a very big turkey hunter. It's a lot different than deer hunting, but it's still a lot of fun. I started hunting in 2001. I wasn't able to go out and hunt the Spring 2004 season because I went to Ocean City, Maryland to be a police officer. The same thing might happen again this year, but I will be ready to go out next Spring no matter what!
I don't have any pictures of the deer I've shot yet up here, but I do have some of the turkeys. I'll get the deer up as soon as I can, but until then, enjoy the turkey!
